Pray for CJ


We want to thank you all so very much for your prayers for our precious CJ and our family. We are in desperate need of your prayers to intercede for us and to sustain us. We first confess that we have often failed you very people in prayer many times. We have often received the email requests for prayer or the reminder of someone in need of prayer and then forgotten to pray or allowed the cares of daily life to choke out that need. Or in our business we have offered a quick prayer and then left it all up to a Sovereign God and did not really spend the effort to really intercede for our brothers and sisters as we should. We humbly ask every one's forgiveness for this yet we boldly ask you to still pray for our CJ. Please cry out to God and intercede for him and for us. Please ask, beg and plead with us as we cry out to God to strengthen him and to heal him.

As many of you know, during a routine MRI for chronic back pain a mass was found in his pelvis that wraps around his spine. He was immediately admitted to the Emergency Room and then transferred to the Joe DiMaggio's Children's Hospital in Hollywood for further testing and evaluation. He will undergo a biopsy on Monday September 15th that will determine the type of tumor this is. After meeting with many different doctors we were told this has also spread to his kidneys. They are already fairly certain this is malignant and the biopsy will determine what form of cancer he has. We are asking God for a benign result of the biopsy even though we have already been told this is not likely. But our God is not a God of likeliness, he is a God of certainty and all his promises are yes and amen. If that is not in His will we are asking for God to have mercy on him and allow it to be an easily treatable form of cancer that responds to medical intervention as opposed to the aggressive kind that does not. I beg you to agree with us in prayer for these same results.
As I type this my heart is torn and my mind is fighting accepting I am talking about my own family, my own son. Yet I know I must do this and ask as many as are willing to pray with us.

I thank you God for not sparing you own son yet I beg of you to spare mine. I know that is unfair and I don't deserve to ask you for that but I stand on your promises that I can boldly approach your throne in freedom and confidence and submit my requests to You. So I do and I bow and beg you to heal my son.

We will try to continue to post updates on his progress here on the blog so people can find out what is going on and hear about the healing God brings to him. May God bring Glory to His name through this.

You may feel free to leave comments for him and they will be read to him to encourage him to be strong.
Humbly,
Chris and Dawn George
and the rest of the George family
on behalf of CJ

I can not help but look at CJ's earlier post about turning to God when we are scared. CJ you have such faith,wisdom, and such a strong spiritual walk that some grown people don't even have. Dawn, earlier when I was praying, I felt an urge to boldly ask our Ultimate Physician & Healer to do just that in CJ.
CJ you have alot of people that are praying for you & who love you so very much. Your compassionate heart has put such joy into all of our lives. I know I speak for everybody when I say you can count on us to be BOLD!!!
You all will continue to be in our thoughts in prayers. GOD can do mighty things!!!
We love you all

I just wanted to share some verses with you...

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Hear my pray, O LORD,
Give ear to my supplications!
In Your faithfulness answer me,
And in Your righteousness.

Matthew 7:7

CJ,

As I read this post I am confident that these comment and words of encouragement are ministering to you. You have such a strong family, such strong friends, such a strong church...but even more

SUCH A STRONG GOD!!!

He has prepared your life for a time such as this and HE will sustain you through. I trust that the Lord, the great physician will heal you, but as you go through this process remember, He has you here for a purpose. this is your mission on earth as of now. So I will also be praying that you have joy through this trial as your life continues to be a witness to ALL those around you.

I LOVE YOU! I AM in CONSTANT prayer for YOU!

In Christ Alone,

CJ,
Your poems are amazing and just as you wrote that God is the creator of this universe, He is YOUR creator. And just as He holds this whole entire universe together He holds you and every detail that is happening in your body together. I'm sure you know the bible verse that says... He feeds the birds of the air, he clothes the lilies of the field...and continues "ARE YOU NOT MORE VALUABLE THAN THEY" (Matthew 6) YES!!! You are. God is with you, watching over you and taking care of you. Don't forget that. He is right by your side. Grab on to Him with all of your heart. And know that we will be praying with ALL OF OUR HEARTS as well! We love you CJ and will be constant in prayer,
The Behar Family - Mr. Behar, Mrs. Behar, Paul, Chloe & Noah

Dear Little C.J.
I know you are probably very scared right now. But your strong faith in God, which is obvious throughout your whole life, is going to help you through this. It is a very hard thing to have to go through, for everyone in your family, and you. But we have faith in God that He will heal you and you will be able to share the gospel with others through such an amazing story. God is in control, we pray that he will give the doctors wisdom, and skill with their hands to heal you.
C.J. you have been such an example to me, and I hope that you will continue to be a light to others, by showing your vivid faith and trust to the doctors and nurses in the hospital.
God is mighty, and no matter what happens, God meant it to be, and has the best in mind for you and your family. No matter what. don't be scared C.J., let God be your rock and let him take care of it.
-Rachel

Hey buddy,

I am praying that you feel better soon. I have a lot of people here in Lynchburg praying for you too. I miss you so much but hopefully I will be able to get down there soon and play Halo with you. Maybe we can do some fishing too.

I love you CJ.

Cara said...

CJ,

We love you and are praying for you buddy. Even at your age, you are a full strength, faith, and courage. We are praying for a complete miracle so that God can recieve all of the glory. We are praying that He gives you supernatural courage and faith every step of the way. We miss you and are planning a trip to FL to see you in a few weeks. Please remember that there are dozens of people in Virginia praying for you!

Lots of Love,
Aunt Cara (& Uncle Shawn)

PS- Here is a Bible verse for you out of Joshua 1:9 - "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."

Dear Dawn,
Words could never express the sorrow that I feel in my heart for you and your little boy. Please count on my prayers. I have asked other prayer warriors to join us as well. May God grant you the peace that surpasses understanding during this very difficult time.

Your sister in Christ,

CJ,

I am so thankful that you are my nephew. I have learned so much from you and your family. I thank you for helping me on my path with the Lord. Your poems are the most beautiful words I have ever read, so sweet and pure, just like you. You are always so sweet, generous, and thoughtful. Now it's time for us all to pull together and exhibit the love and thoughtfulness you have always given us. Thank you for teaching me how to be a better person in Christ and in life. KEEP ON WRITING! I love you.

CJ,

My name is Cesar Sedano and I'm Amber/Noah's older cousin. I live in WPB with my family. He sent me an E-mail asking to pray for you and your family! As I read most of these comments. It brings Godly joy to my heart that you are loved by so many people! I want to share somthing with you! I spend time early in the morning with GOD and just outside my house there is a HAWK(Osprey) in one of the very tall trees! It's a beautiful bird, majestic, and free! Like in your poem "He is GOD's creation". When I read his word and spend time with him outside in the patio(sometimes @ 5:30am). I have asked GOD for confirmation(wanting to hear HIS voice/maybe a sign). I've asked HIM because at that moment something from HIS word spoke into my heart maybe some kind of struggle/sin/decision or person! Something that needs to be resolved or someone needing help!! Well, just about everytime HE has answered this desire in my heart thru this majestic bird and just a second ago he sang(spoke) to me again as I'm writing this to you(Praying/thinking of you). GOD tends to answer everyone in different ways. This is how I hear him! Prior to writing this I went outside(35min. ago) having a dialogue in my mind about you and as I talked to GOD. Well guess what? It was a beautiful sound(Yes he answered)! And he was right there on top of this tree(his home)! I share this with you because GOD placed it in my heart to let you know that HE is right next you and walking with you!! As you deal with this health issue! CJ we love you man!! God sends HIS LOVE and wants you to hear this:

Philippians 4:4-9

"Rejoice in th Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let you gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which trascends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me--put into practice. And the God of peace will be with you."
We love you CJ and we are praying for you!! We will ask the rest of our church to pray for you and your family!
Cesar and Mayra Sedano

I just found your blog through the caring bridge for our friend Truman.

Our son Elijah was diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma in September 2008. He was 9 years old. He is in remission now - thank the Lord.

We will add CJ to our list of fighters to pray for.
